In 2017 New World Theatre put out a call for plays centered on an academic theme, and from those submissions, four plays were selected to comprise this production entitled, It's Academic . The stories include a philosophy professor, whose forced retirement causes him to deeply examine his life ( An Unexamined Life , by William Ivers), two grade schoolers, who are trying to make sense of the current political climate over a box of Milk Duds ( Idealogues , by Jack Neary), an extravagant escape to a luxury hotel suite, that only provides a temporary reprieve from reality ( Easter at the Entreé Gold , by John Minigan), and a High School English class dealing with school bureaucracy, student apathy, and an active shooter drill ( An Ordinary Day With Bullets by Walter A. Freeman).

William Ivers is s a teacher and writer whose work has been featured in various publications. He won the prestigious Northeastern Playwriting Competition with his original one­act play, An Unexamined Life.
